TOAST

Black Toast to be exact....

My long-time blogging sista, KATHY, of KATHY'S COTTAGE
did a post on 


EMMA BRIDGEWATER POTTERY

OMYGOSH....
I've been in love with this line for years...BLACK TOAST...
white with black writing...
WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE..??

Emma's factory is in England
and the prices are fairly reasonable for the quality.
 I kept trying to ignore Kathy's post...
but every time I tried to think what I wanted to give for
CHRISTMAS GIFTS,
I kept going back and looking at the picture above, probably from Emma's website.

SOOO:


when FEDX left this large box for me today,
I was beyond excited.



I tore into that box so fast..


and everything was packed so well.

Bubble wrap around each piece and then the thick packing paper wrapped  and placed between the items.

I was so excited to see it all, I was afraid I'd break something, just getting it out of the box.



I've mentioned that their prices are reasonable for the high quality...
and they are higher than a lot of other pottery....
but....
they do offer SECONDS...for a few dollars less.


DON'T LET THE CAT GET IN THE BUTTER


 A POUND OF THE BEST BUTTER




this little pitcher is sooo cute.


COFFEE & NEWSPAPERS ON SUNDAY MORNING....



These were all so cute, I just had to doll them up for a photo shoot....
please bear with me...
I have such fun playing photographer with such cute subjects....







I bought these few pieces for Christmas gifts..
but...uh ooo....
I am feeling stingy and selfish and mean
'cause I want every one of them...
yep....my black side is showing.... 
nooo, I may keep a couple pieces but give the other two for gifts...
*HEAVY sigh

  7. My five year plan is to move to the beach into a small cottage by the sea. It may not be a "cottage" but I plan to decorate it like one with lots of whites and creams. This would be a perfect set to add to my style.
    Love it.

  11. Oh yes I love that line and only have one piece. I always look for it at sales etc.
    Keep it all and just keep adding to it . I would love to find a store that sells seconds. Sometimes in those stores I can't find the flaw to make it a second.

  14. Ha ha! We'll see how those Christmas gifts pan out. Dear and I and our son and daughter in law were at the Emma Bridgewater factory store in 2013. Lots of fun stuff. I came away with a mug from the seconds shop...hedgehogs.
